Supporting orphans while bringing about sustainable change that reduces the need for orphanages

For the past 20 years, Miracle Foundation has improved the lives of more than 15,000 vulnerable children and orphans in need and impacted more than 300 orphanages in India.

Our revolutionary Thrive Scale™ methodology is based on the UN Rights of the Child and leverages data and technology to give every child the chance to reach their full potential.

Miracle Foundation is an international nonprofit for children, headquartered in Austin, Texas with offices in New York City and New Delhi. Much of our work is conducted in India, the epicenter of the global orphan crisis. Our approach is rooted in years of on-the-ground experience, driven by a careful methodology and powered by a deep passion to improve the lives of children and give them a chance to grow up in a family.

We believe in collaboration as we know this work is bigger than any one organization. We are part of a global network of nonprofit organizations leading the worldwide movement to end the need for orphanages by 2040.

How our founder was inspired to start a charity for children

Miracle Foundation was born on Mother’s Day 2000. Our founder Caroline Boudreaux set off on a trip around the world and found herself at an Indian orphanage in a remote village in Odisha. She was haunted by the conditions in which the orphaned children lived, but captivated by their strength, beauty and untapped potential.
